Tera Reed was named Virginia Lottery Student-Athlete of the Week after scoring a third of VCU's points in their dominating win over Old Dominion last Wednesday. The 6-foot dynamic guard provided 22 of VCU's 68 points, while knocking down 3-of-4 from three-point range.
Along with a career-high 22 points, the New Zealander grabbed six rebounds with four assists in what was the team's best showing of the season. Reed came out aggressively in the first quarter with six points, three rebounds, and two assists to help VCU claim a 20-2 advantage.
"It was very exciting, especially being back home. All throughout November we were traveling the whole month so it was really good to be back, and then getting that win here was a really good feeling," Reed said.
Though she's still adjusting to the pace of collegiate basketball, the freshman leads the Rams through eight games with 14.4 points per game. She's second on the team in rebounds, averaging 6.9 per game. "In my head, it's more of me just learning. I have a lot to improve and work on."
Reed also added seven points and three rebounds in a losing effort to Radford on Sunday.
